Andrew W.K. has a new gig lined up — cultural ambassador to the Middle East, as selected by the U.S. Department of State. The staunch partying advocate will be spreading that message abroad, traveling to Bahrain in late December, visiting universities and elementary schools alike. As he put it himself, on his website: “I’m very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I’ve never been before. And I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!” (Photo by whartonds)source
The full range of worldly temptations and vices are available – alcohol, drugs, sex – but strictly behind closed doors.
A leak from Wikileaks’ Cablegate series • Suggesting that Saudi Arabia is in fact not as conservative as it seems behind closed doors. Apparently, it goes like this; the Vice Police tends to go after people into sex/drugs/alcohol, but they tend to leave Saudi princes (of which there are thousands) alone – especially if they have a direct lineage to King Abdullah. So, as a result, if a Saudi prince is at your party, it’s time to GET DOWN. source(via • follow)
